Asian Americans in the Law

History

Members of racial minority groups face hurdles at almost every step of the process preceding appointment to the federal judiciary. At the most basic level, these problems stem from the continuing effects of systemic societal bias against racial minorities.

Information on the experiences of Asian Americans in our courts has not been as meticulously recorded as that of other minority groups. An Asian American had never been appointed to the federal bench until 1971. However, these individuals continue to make great strides in our judiciary today.
